Man Shot, Killed On Bridgeport Street

CHICAGO (CBS) — Police are looking for suspects Tuesday morning, after a man was found shot to death in the Bridgeport neighborhood.

The 33-year-old man was shot in the back in the 3100 block of South Green Street, half a block west of Halsted Street, police said. He was discovered around 10:15 p.m.

The victim was standing on the street when a black minivan headed east on 31st Street from Poplar Avenue stopped, and an assailant with a handgun got out and started shooting, police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli said.

The man was later identified as Jeremy Colanco, of an unidentified home address — was dead on the scene, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

The Chicago Tribune reported he was a gang member out on parole, and his real last name was “Colanto,” but “Colanco” was an alias that he used.

As of Tuesday morning, no one was in custody.

    I guess the police station at 3120 S. Halsted wasn’t much of a deterrent…
